About Katherine


Bio

I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.A. in English, minor in psychology, and B.A. in biology, minor in economics, in 2014. Since then, I attended law school at Georgetown University and received my J.D. in 2019. I have been pivoting into a career in tutoring and teaching. I'm interested in and have experience with many different subjects (including writing and editing, biology, English, ACT Prep, psychology, lower-level economics, and some law) and really enjoy engaging with...

I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.A. in English, minor in psychology, and B.A. in biology, minor in economics, in 2014. Since then, I attended law school at Georgetown University and received my J.D. in 2019. I have been pivoting into a career in tutoring and teaching. I'm interested in and have experience with many different subjects (including writing and editing, biology, English, ACT Prep, psychology, lower-level economics, and some law) and really enjoy engaging with students working on these subjects.

I am also a professional ballet dancer and began teaching ballet back in 2011. Since then, I have taught all levels of ballet: from children to adults and from beginners to advanced dancers. Teaching ballet spurred my interest in teaching and tutoring more generally. While in law school, I continued to teach ballet and began tutoring with a small tutoring company based in Washington, D.C. Since I began working with the company, I trained in their ACT and SAT test prep methodologies and have tutored several students preparing for their ACTs. I especially enjoy working with students on English and writing and am currently in the process of completing my TESOL certification to fine-tune my English skills for tutoring.

I have a B.A. in English and studied both literature and professional writing in depth in college. I am a huge bookworm and read widely. I am currently undergoing my TESOL certification and continue to learn about the English language whenever I can.

I also have a B.A. in biology. I am a biology nerd and am especially fond of ecology, marine biology, and invertebrate biology.

Other subjects I also have some experience in include: psychology, lower-level economics, ACT test prep, and some high school chemistry and geology.

Please let me know if you are interested in my tutoring services. I really enjoy working with students and helping each of my students learn and grow in their sessions with me. I hope to work with you soon!

Ballet

I grew up training at Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico and attended summer intensives at American Ballet Theatre, Nutmeg, Walnut Hill, and Alonzo King's LINES Ballet. I danced in the company with Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico for 9 years, dancing lead roles such as Sugarplum (The Nutcracker), Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Beauty (Beauty & the Beast), Diana (Diana and Actaeon), among many others. I danced with various groups in the DC metro area and am currently a company member with The Tallahassee Ballet. I've been teaching all ages and levels of ballet - from children to adults and from beginners to advanced dancers - since 2011.

SAT

Kathrine was very patient and understanding with my son, explaining very well the concepts, techniques, and what sections would appear on the PSAT to help him.

Claudia , 1 lesson with Katherine

A fantastic tutor

She went over passed grade writing assignments for my legal research class. She helped me to see what I had missed in my summary judgment brief. She was extremely capable to opening my eyes to what I was missing. She was great.

Very kind, patient, skilled. I’ve learned good basics as a beginner. She is committed and punctual. We didn’t not miss any lessons. My balance has improved.

Katherine was patience and great tutor for my daughter! Detailed and took her time for the weekly homeschool lessons. Looking forward to continue using her as a tutor.

Abigail, 29 lessons with Katherine

amazing college tutor

Katherine has been keeping me organized and prepared in my online classes. She is currently helping me in American History and Economics but, believe she could help in many academic areas as she takes the time to review the subject matter prior to our lessons.
